Default Header Install!!

I've installed headers on a roadrunner, a ramcharger and a powerwagon, and all were extremely difficult....the headers i've found for my the 318 in my 97 Ram don't look the same, and looking under the hood it doesnt appear to be that difficult.....so my questions is, how difficult is it!!! What kind of problems will I run into trying to get them to fit?? Thanks guys in advance for the help/advice/pics/ whatever!!!!

I havnt installed mine yet but I have researched it and I remember that one side was a breeze and the other was somewhat difficult to fit but once you got it there it fit well.

hmm...just by the look of it, i believe the passenger side wont be much of a problem, but the driver side may be a different story....i went ahead and ordered me some, I couldnt wait and already had the dual exhaust with the x pipe and flows installed yesterday so i hope everything bolts up well

Hello I've owned 4 ram (3 gassers, 1 24v). Its easier than you think hoss. The passenger side will be a piece of cake the driver side will be a pain in the ass cause you have to do gymnastics to get the bolts in right. MAKE SURE TO BACK THE BOLTS BOLTS UP TO LINE THEM UP OR THEY WILL MOST LIKELY CROSSTHREAD AND THAT IS A BITCH TO FIX!!!! secondly get you a aluminum gasket. It will seat better. other than those two things youll be fine.

I have put some on my 5.9, should be the exact same thing. They are easy, I think I did mine in 30 minutes. DEFINITELY make sure you spend the money and get the Aluminum gaskets. I used Percy's gaskets and they worked great, I haven't had any leaks what so ever!

long tube or shortys? i installed shorty on my 99 and it was a piece of cake, took me a lil longer cuz installed a catless y-pipe at the same time. passenger side is as easy as takin candy from a baby, drivers side back bolts might give ya a lil trouble cuz of the brake booster right there

Stage 8 has some locking header bolts, with a good gasket and a set of those I would think they should keep a good seal for the life of their existence. Thats what I plan on doing when I put mine on next summer.
